Today marks the 94th birthday of the late, great Jack Kirby, I joined a handful of other artists in celebrating the special day with portraits of the King of Comics at the Kirby Musuem's Kirby-Vision, a showcase for creative work inspired by the art and concepts of Jack Kirby. Happy birthday, Jack. We miss you.

Here's my contribution to the DC Fifty-Too!, a blog run by Jon Morris:
WHAT IS DC FIFTY-TOO?
As you've probably heard, DC Comics is less than two weeks away from relaunching their entire line of superhero comics, fifty-two all new titles starting (or starting over) at the first issue. Most of their characters are getting new looks, some are getting streamlined or updated histories, and some older and more obscure characters are getting a turn in the spotlight.
Once DC started releasing the cover images of what the New DC Universe would look like, it got me wondering what the New DC Universe would look like ... if it were out of DC's hands.
I contacted a plethora of very talented - and very different - cartoonists with a simple challenge: If DC approached you and offered you any DC property - past or present - of your choice to be your own new ongoing part of the DC Universe, what would the cover to the first issue look like?
Fifty-two artists (and then some) responded, and that brings us here - DC FIFTY-TOO, The New DC Universe as imagined by fifty-two independent cartoonists. Starting on August 15th and running up through August 31st - the day the New DC Universe launches - this blog will unveil four new covers every weekday for DC Comics that never were but probably ought to have been!
I chose Brother Power, the Geek, an obscure and random character from the late '60s in a title that ran only two issues. Check out DC Fifty-Too! for more brilliant artwork by talented creators.

I was messing around with brush and ink, and a graytone brush-pen. The creature from the Black Lagoon popped outta the mess. I was never the greatest inker and even now I'm rusty on top of that. This one is for Wayne at Annex. Happy birthday.
